Normal water supply returning to customers in County Clare

Monday, 29 January, 2024: Uisce Éireann is aware that a small number of customers may be experiencing low pressure and water discolouration following supply interruptions in County Clare.

Repair works were carried out at Ballymacraven Water Treatment Plant and Old Doolagh Water Treatment Plant and normal supply has been restored to the majority of customers however, some customers on higher ground or at the end of the network are experiencing intermittent low water pressure. 

Customers who experience issues with discolouration are asked to run the cold water tap in the kitchen for a few minutes. Doing this usually clears any unusual colour. Further information on discoloured water is available at 

Darragh Conneely, Water Operations Lead with Uisce Éireann thanked customers for their patience as normal supply returns to homes and businesses. 

Uisce Éireann understands the inconvenience when an unplanned outage occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we worked to restore supply.
